KASOAG LAKE UPDATES
November 29, 2014
Once again, we have pulled through and with your voice we have passed the increase for 2015. I would like to thank all of the members that voted. Here is the breakdown, we needed 67 to pass. I have contact Allied Biological to let them know.
Votes: Yes - 88, No - 2
I feel that some more answers are needed to be explained about the treatment of the lake for 2015.
The money is not due at this time, it will be due at the April meeting. The association is asking for $200.00 for 2015 only, that does include your 2015 dues of $75.00. This past season we asked for your dues of $75.00 and $100.00 extra and most of you paid this amount. So in 2015 we are asking for an additional $25.00. If you are on a fixed income please pay your dues and any additional money that you can afford. We are all in this together as property owners and members of the association. This is a large mountain ($16,600.00) to handle, but we have over come this before. So for the members that have voted, I thank you. We need to have more people vote on this. The time frame is short, so please send your yes or no votes or questions to email@example.com.

The contract is in from Allied Biological, and we are facing a large increase for the lake treatment in 2015. This is due to the herbicide that is needed to control the invasive aquatic plant fanwort. The herbicide they will use is Sonar One, which will kill both the fanwort and the milfoil. This is a more aggressive herbicide than was used in our treatment #1. The fanwort is the heaviest in Shinglemill Creek and is spreading out into 3rd and 4th lakes. This plant is very aggressive now that the milfoil has been reduced to small patches, and is moving in and taking over where the milfoil was prior to treatment #1.
The KLCA board feels that this treatment is needed to control this aquatic plant, to keep our lake as free from invasive plants as possible, and keep the fanwort from running throughout the lake. The contract price from Allied is $16,600.00 to treat upper and lower Shinglemill Creek and specific spots throughout the lake as a whole. For the past five years we have had approximately 75 members per season, so if we take 75 x a $200.00 contribution per household (which includes your dues), we would have $15,000.00 toward treatment #2.
Allied has agreed to a payment plan of four payments of $4,150.00 each, beginning at the first meeting, which will occur in April of 2015. We are sending out letters of request to Senator Ritchie, the Oswego County Soil and Water Conservation and some private businesses in the Syracuse area to help contribute toward the cost of the treatment. I know that this may seem like a lot to ask of our members, but we must keep moving forward to keep Kasoag Lake from being over run with invasive plants, and continue to be able to enjoy our water ways.
In closing, I am asking for your vote on the $200.00 contribution. Please email yes or no to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I am sending this out now due to the timeframe needed to obtain the permit so that Allied can do the treatment in May of 2015.
Thank you for your anticipated support!
